Would give zero stars if I could. The dirtiest, worst smelling hotel room I have ever been in. Tried several rooms and they were all bad and full of flies, dirt, mold, and mildew. Asked for a refund within 30 minutes of check in and was refused. Front desk clerk was rude and unhelpful. Do NOT stay here if you want your room to be the least bit clean. We had to leave and stay elsewhere it was so bad. Complete waste of money!

So I am driving from Florida to Indiana. It is Sunday about 9 pm and starting to get tired. I see this exit pull off and walk in the front door. I tell the guy, who was very polite for such a late night, I need a room with two beds and a pullout couch for five. He says no problem. I say can I have ground floor, he says no problem. Total cost, $70. Breakfast in the morning, room was clean, water pressure awesome. I can't beat that for $70 buck and no reservation. I recommend. Yes it is not a four seasons or holiday in, but remember you get what you pay for.

Booked room at Econolodge at Choice website w/government discount. Had 4-year old grandson with visit parent after recent hospital visit. Also took grandson to child abuse awareness and safety activities at Sportsman Lake. Grand son was looking forward to staying in the "tall house" his name for multistory motel/hotel. Econolodge appears to have been a Comfort Inn or Quality Inn previously. Check in was efficient. Price w/government discount was a bargain. Motel room was in reasonably good shape and it was evident that cosmetic and minor maintenance was in progress. Room clean and spacious with two beds. Internet was strong and cable/satellite TV choices were extensive. Thankfully able to find decent children's channels and cartoons to supplement the time grandson spent playing with his cars, trucks, etc., on the second bed. Water was hot and plentiful for showers. The motel was located near a busy interstate (I65) and truckstop. Didn't notice any issues with noise from the interstate or truck stop. Breakfast was adequate...biscuits with gravy, toast, cereals, muffins, juices, coffee, apples. Will stay again when in the area.

Traveled all the way from south Florida and was really tired. All was up hill after checking in ,the clerk was great,room was really big and clean,food joints were really close. I slept 8 hours in total quietness. Coffee area was really nice. Will come back.

The Cullman Econo Lodge is OK for a quick overnight, but nothing special. It was generally clean, the shower had good pressure and hot water, the bed was "so, so" and the fixtures worked. This is an older property so it shows its age, and the "fit and finish" shows that it is not greater than a 2-star hotel. The service was friendly and efficient and the wifi was fine. Breakfast was cereal and toast for us....we passed on the bisquits and gravy. Quick access to the Interstate.

Booked this room based on proximity to the interstate as we were not familiar with the area. Was super close to the interstate but really sketchy. I read reviews stating how clean it was, pride taken by owners - must have forgotten our room for quite some time! Booked a nonsmoking room but were told when we checked in that there were none available. Room was very stale smelling/felt like the door had not been opened in months. Sheets and blankets extremely thin, pillows very flat. The worst part was the mildew around the tub and tile in the bathroom- really icky. No one slept well and we didn't bother to check out the breakfast- just wanted to leave.

My dad and I were on a return trip from watching the Auburn/ Arkansas game and our original reservation fell through elsewhere. We found the Econolodge in Cullman and it was great! Clean room! Lovely staff!

You can tell they take pride in this location, the rooms were very clean. The beds we comfortable and and everything worked in the room which is kinda rare these days. When I checked in the staff at the desk greeted me with a smile and was very friendly. Defiantly worth a stay if you are in the area.

From check in to check out, we were very pleased with our stay. So much, that on our return trip home, we stayed for another night. The price was very reasonable. The cleanliness of the grounds, the room, and the dining area impressed me! My normal routine during a checking in process is......check the bed, then the bathroom. If these can pass, then I'm good. Everything was in working order. No, it isn't a 5 star hotel BUT you will receive 5 star service! The gentleman who checked us in was so pleasant. The breakfast menu is a normal continental breakfast. No frills yet filling. It is a smoking/nonsmoking hotel. So state your preference during check in. As smokers, we were pleasantly surprised that our smoking room was so clean and didn't smell like an old cigarette. How can a smoker say that? Because not all smokers are the same. Not all smokers are nasty with their habit and their used butts. On our return trip home, we asked for the same room. Again, spic and span clean. We would recommend this Econo Lodge. If future road trips bring us this way, we will not hesitate coming back to room 109. Many thanks to the owners for taking pride in their establishment. It shows.

Good stay we were only there for one night ..the only complaint is we had 4 staying in our room and we had three towels and three washcloths and the shower was hard to get to stay on but once it was on it stayed??? The rim was clean and cool and that was a plus
